Kuala Selangor Fireflies Boat Ride & Batu Caves Tour from Kuala Lumpur
BATU CAVES - Batu Caves, one of Kuala Lumpur’s most frequented tourist attractions, is a limestone hill comprising three major caves and a number of smaller ones. Located approximately 11 kilometres to the north of Kuala Lumpur, this 100-year-old temple features idols and statues erected inside the main caves and around it. Incorporated with interior limestone formations said to be around 400 million years old, the temple is considered an important religious landmark by Hindus.
FIREFLIES - Experience the magic of nature at Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park, where you can take a motor boat out onto the river to see the glowing insects thriving among the mangrove trees. The fireflies light up the trees like living fairy lights, creating a surreal atmosphere after dark

Kuala Selangor is a small coastal village northwest of Kuala Lumpur. The village is renowned for the great attraction alongside the Selangor River that runs through the village. On this river you can spot the famous fireflies (Kelip-Kelip in Bahasa Melayu) during evenings/nights. The fireflies all are found on the mangrove tree species called berembang. It is said that this is one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world. If you want to check out the fireflies yourself, you should head out to Kampung Kuantan (9km from Kuala Selangor) in the beginning of the evening. We will arrange an eco-friendly rowing boat; a local boat man will escort you. There are opening hours to take into account; you can visit the attraction between 8.00pm and 10.30pm daily (except for rainy days).
